    I am having a problem with indesign CS3 and paragraph styles that I never come across and I hope some can help me out.

    I have a large word doc that I have placed into indesign as normal.

    I have received a indd doc with existing paragraph styles.

    I am having issues with the styles:

    For example I have a say "heading 1" which is assigned a font in bold.
    When I am applying the paragraphs style it will not turn to bold, even though it says it is bold.

    This is also happening with the font, and the size of the font.

    I tried defining new styles of my own and applying. They work as an override but when I clear the override, it changes back to the 'light" but keeps the font.

    I have reloaded and cleared my font preferences and tried again.
    But it keeps happening.

    I have tried a fresh indd doc. with my own type. and it works.

    The doc is huge so I dont wish to override styles it would be silly.

    And even if I strip the word doc of formating, again the doc is huge so I would rather not go down that path.

    Any suggestions. I have never come across this before and it is driving me crazy? Perhaps there is something really simple I am missing here?

    Thanks ali
